About Civil Engineering Department:


Courses Offered:

Bachelor of Engineering in Civil,  Master of Technology in Environmental, Geo-technical and Structural Engineering, Master of Science in Engineering (Research), Doctor of Philosophy.


Specialised Areas:

Structures, Environmental, Transportation, Water Resources and Geo-technical Engineering.


The department is in existence since the inception of the college, 1963 with an objective to develop students to face new challenges posed in the profession. The department is accredited by National Board of Accreditation.

The faculty members have received higher qualifications and training from reputed institutions like IIT, IISc and NIT. The teaching faculty is well assisted by the supporting staff. The department has seven laboratories viz. Material Testing, Environmental, Geotechnical, Fluid Mechanics, Surveying, Transportation and Geology with sophisticated state-of-the-art equipment modernized under TEQIP funded by World Bank. An independent Computer Centre is also set up with high end machines and independent server supporting all major software packages viz. Autodesk 2007, GIS, STAAD PRO 2006, NISA Civil, SAP, ETABS, and STRAP. The department has an independent library and seminar hall with latest multimedia teaching aids.

The department has set up a consultancy cell to disseminate the knowledge and expertise of staff to offer services to government and non-government organizations in this region. In synchronization with STEP (Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Park) of our College and Nirmiti Kendra the cell assists in developing Cost Effective Housing products. The department organizes seminars/ workshops and also training programme to PWD/ZP/Land Army/Irrigation engineers on a regular basis under Continuing Education Programme. The department is also recognized as the State Resource Institution for conducting training programme to Engineers under NPCBEERM.


The department has also been recognized as a research centre for students to pursue their doctoral studies in different specializations. The department has planned to set up Earth Quake Engineering and Geo-technical Engineering laboratories as the thrust areas under TEQIP.
